Brandon Jennings, who is out after oral surgery for a hairline fracture of the jaw and impacted wisdom tooth, went through some light shooting drills Wednesday. He wore a protective mask. He cited his jaw being wired shut in declining an interview request. The projected starting point guard is expected to miss at least four regular-season games. "He's been a part of everything, with the exception of running," Cheeks said. "So when we've watched film and been on the practice floor, he has been a part of it. So yeah, whenever he gets his situation taken care of, we'll put him in there, see what he's got." Booth Newspapers
